where did you get the tickets on line for the raffle? How exciting, and I applaud you for considering the rem 700 as your other rifles are the same make/model. Less to think about when the moment happens!!

Unbelievable! Winning a Cape buffalo hunt!
The only thing I'm ever "winning" seems to be more bills and great grandkids!

Just looked in the mirror and I'm green with envy!
Have a great time planning and going on your hunt, but please don't forget us on AH and post pics and report.

Enjoy!

How lucky can a guy get? An almost free Buff Hunt and a new rifle. Enjoy both.

Congrats...What a great prize to win. As mentioned here by other members just ask away! The knowledge here is extensive. Listen to your PH while your out there. Buy enough gun for sure .. The 375 is the minimum allowed in SA for buff. Can't go wrong with the 375 HH for buff. I too will be taking the same hunt in August adding hippo to it also. Have a blast!

Thanks. Since I'm already going to be there, I am also considering adding a hippo

Matt you lucky dog! My two cents..... 375 H&H is a sweet rifle for Africa including Cape buffalo. As far as reading material Boddington's book titled Buffalo! is a good all round book on hunting buffalo and should give you a good idea what you have gotten yourself in to! As far as hunting it this year or next.... you would save on the airfare and the long plane ride if you did it in conjunction with this years trip. But there is something to be said for looking forward to another trip to Africa next year. No wrong answers here just choices.

I bought some bullets from Rimshot and he is good to trade with!
Greetings all! I've been a hunter for 50 years, but only now planning a trip to Africa. I was fortunate and successfully bid on a couple hunts for plains game in SA later this year and next. Also a rare Native Texas (5th generation) and USMC Vet. Hunt safe y'all!

I am looking for a Safari Express. Was yours made in New Haven or South Carolina? Any other details you can give me? I am very motivated to buy.
